Evi Statiri still in prison for being the life companion of a captive anarchist urban guerrilla (Greece)
Wednesday, July 15th, 2015
On July 14th 2015, it became known that the latest motion for release filed by Evi Statiri (the life partner of CCF imprisoned member Gerasimos Tsakalos) was rejected by the competent judicial council.
Despite the fact that Evi has never been a member of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, nor had she any involvement whatsoever in the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire escape plan, which was uncovered in January 2015, she is nevertheless being held in pretrial detention in Koridallos prison since March 2nd.

Statement by Nikos Maziotis to the appeals court at the first trial of the Revolutionary Struggle on July 7 – Concerning the bankruptcy of the country (Greece)
Monday, July 13th, 2015
As is well known, the repressive attack by the state against Revolutionary Struggle in 2010, as an historical fact, was a counterpart to the signing of the first memorandum by the Papandreou government and bringing the country under the authority of the IMF, the ECB, and the EU. As was said at the time by a government official, our arrests prevented “a large terrorist attack that would have ended the economy,” a statement proving the dangerousness of the action of Revolutionary Struggle at a critical juncture for the regime.
The first trial against the organization was in the period of the application of the first memorandum, developments that included controlled bankruptcy proceedings and imposed a social policy of genocide and euthanasia towards segments of the population that caused thousands of deaths so far, and poverty, hunger and misery. When the first trial started in October 2011, we had stated that the trial was conducted in a period awaiting formal bankruptcy of the country, which did not happen then, because there was unveiled a controlled bankruptcy regime in order to save the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds and to defend the Eurozone from the risk of transmission of the Greek crisis.
It is an irony of history that ultimately the bankruptcy of Greece is associated with the days of the leftist Syriza government almost four years later, which announced a referendum on the question YES or NO to the proposals of lenders for the new memorandum that they will sign. Along with the bankruptcy of the country comes the bankruptcy of the left social-democratic illusions that promised state interventions in favor of the workers and the poor of the EU inside a globalized neoliberal environment.

Tell us a little bit about what has happened concerning the academic leave of absence you have demanded within the new judicial framework after your hunger strike in November-December 2014.
It goes like this: I completed 1/3 of the course as required by the new regulation and I made the request for educational leave. From that point on began the theater of the absurd. The prison board decided that the new regulation cannot be put into effect, it requires a joint ministerial decision and so it sent the request to the special appellate magistrate E. Nikopoulos, in line with the previous law. Nikopoulos issued a negative response because there is no ministerial decision and one cannot get into the merits of the application as the new judicial framework annuls and takes the place of the prior one. Based on the negative opinion of Nikopoulos, the Board rejected the leave request in its turn as the decision of the trial judge is binding.
In light of this fait accompli, SYRIZA -which during the hunger strike concentrated on electioneering and brutal political exploitation on the backs of the people who made up the polymorphic solidarity movement- plays the role of Pontius Pilate, just like its predecessors. But of course this should come as no surprise since we are talking about politicians- that is to say, total bastards, political swindlers, opportunists, hypocrites and professional chameleons, who for a small time wore the costume of the humanist to serve certain political purposes. Of course there are more important reasons for that development, but I’ll keep this explanation for a later question. Concerning the progress of my case, theoretically speaking, there should be a ministerial decree to implement the new regulation, but I don’t think there is much possibility for that to happen.

Text of Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis regarding Greece’s default and exit from the EMU – en/fr/it
Thursday, July 2nd, 2015
The SYRIZA-led government is collapsing. The Greek default and exit from the Eurozone, as choice of the lenders, is a process that started in 2010 and currently marks the beginning of the end of the SYRIZA government. The implementation of the memoranda from 2010 was one phase in the process of orderly default that the supranational economic elite had chosen, in order to ensure the sustainability of the Euro and to cut off one member that due to the debt crisis is considered gangrened and has to be expelled. Essentially, Greece’s default has always been regarded by the supranational economic elite as a prerequisite for its salvation, without even breaking the country’s obligations to the lenders, something that was ensured by the inclusion of the country into the power of the IMF, the ECB and the European Commission.
Since 2009, Greece was already a bankrupt country and this was something known by both the then government of Georgios Papandreou and the European Union. The supranational economic elite, from 2010 onwards, followed an orderly default tactic so as to safeguard the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds, the French, German, British and American banks.
The first aim of the memorandum was that it prohibited unilateral suspension of debt payments on the part of the debtor. On that basis, all of the Greek state-owned assets were frozen to ensure the repayment of the debt.
Athens: ‘Combative Anarchy / FAI-IRF’ takes responsibility for arson attack against SYRIZA offices in anarchist prisoner solidarity action (Greece)
Tuesday, June 30th, 2015
Combative Anarchy / FAI – IRF takes responsibility for the incendiary attack against SYRIZA offices in Kypseli. We torched the offices of these politicians opportunists as a first response to the rejection of the educational leave of our comrade Nikos Romanos and the vindictive extension of the hostage situation of the wife of the comrade of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Gerasimos Tsakalos. The world of authority is here. In the hands of immigrants marked with numbers, in the summits of economists, the incessant propaganda of journalists, the ministries of the “left governance”, in courts, police stations, the villas of the rich. Anarchist insurrection does not aim to reform capitalism, nor stops the action depending on the political administrator of the machines of death and exploitation. The dawn of our time will come upon the ruins of capitalist society. Until then, the only thing left to us is the continuous and uncompromising anarchist struggle.
STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO ARM THEIR NEGATIONS! STRENGTH TO ALL ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
PS) During the hunger strike of the imprisoned comrades in Chile, we torched a diplomatic vehicle in Ano Pefki, wanting to heat their hearts with the fire of anarchist solidarity. Get well comrades.

On Monday 22 June 2015, 40 anarchists of anarchist collective “Rouviconas” in Athens, defied the so called majority in the streets, infiltrated at the center of a right wing protest of approximately 5.000 protesters demonstrating in favour of EU and IMF austerity measures in front of the Greek parliament in Syntagma square and burned several European Union flags shocking the ultra conservative crowd.
The Riot Police, now governed by the so called left government of Syriza proceeded to arrest all of the anarchist protesters, verifying that Class War exists even in the so called right to protest.

CCF Escape case: Christodoulos Xiros refuses to answer to the court, makes political statement (Greece)
Saturday, June 6th, 2015
5 June 2015, Athens - Christodoulos Xiros, ex-member of the Revolutionary Organisation 17 November, who is facing charges for participation in the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire escape attempt that was foiled in January by the Greek authorities, denied to answer any questions from the judicial apparatus and made a political statement.
In his brief political statement, Xiros expressed his views and called on the examining magistrate Eftihis Nikopoulos and everyone that he works for to apologize themselves.
Part of his statement read: “I have nothing to say to mechanisms that support the occupation forces and their local collaborators. You and those you serve should apologize to the people and history.”
Solidarity to arrested Grigoris Tsironis and Spiros Christodoulou and in active insurrectionary memory of Spiros Dravilas (Greece)
Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015
20 May 2015 – Greek police terror operation results in the arrest of two comrades and the execution of Spiros Dravilas:
Living a dignified path under the most adverse conditions
The police operation in Nea Aghialos on 20.5.2015 was crowned as a “success”. The TV cannibals stand over our friend’s dead body and scream: Grigoris Tsironis, Spiros Christodoulou and the deceased Spiros Dravilas are ruthless robbers and blood-thirsty murderers.
Grigoris was and remains a comrade. From his first arrests, a result of his participation in the Polytechnic occupation in 1995 and the struggles against the regeneration of Exarchia square in 1997, up to his participation in dozens of dynamic interventions of the anarchist movement and his active presence as a worker in the courier syndicate, Grigoris was always by our side. A fugitive as of January 2006 after the expropriation of a National Bank on Solonos street, he lived ten years of battle and survival against capitalism and its repressive mechanisms.
With a bounty on his head since 2009 for the same case and targeted all these years, he managed to maintain his humanity and militancy despite the adversities and the hunt set up against him by the modern persecution squad.
Spiros Christodoulou was and remains an unrepentant proletarian who carved and carves his own dignified path under the most adverse conditions: prison and illegality.
Just like Spiros Dravilas… He had tasted it from the age of 21 when he first came into contact with the harsh reality of incarceration. (more…)

Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy) – fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
i) Frozen Marxism
Today’s era smells like engine oil, cheap labor sweat and naphthalene of the morality of voluntary obedience… We do not want to be defined by the culture of techno-industrial fascism, the white uniforms of scientists, the neckties of technocrats, the eager silences of ordinary people, the stupid smiles of consumers… We do not match with the aesthetics of the glass world of flat television screens, the digital imitation of the life of social media, the display windows of lifestyle, the lens of security cameras. We do not fit in the society of captivity, the police checks of our identification papers, the supervision of security guards, the laws of the judges, the locked doors of prisons. We do not settle for the average normality dictated by morality, we don’t amuse our boredom with psychotropic drugs, we aren’t covered by the coldness of empty relations, we don’t read… Marx.
Today we live to the rhythm of a generalized crisis. Our daily life is throttled from the tyranny of numbers. Our life resembles an accounting book, whose calculations always find it deficient and indebted. They overwhelm us with financial terms and definitions, one half of which are unknown and the other half of no interest to us. The wandering charlatans of all ideologies, roam from one financial conference to the other and bombard us with ramblings and often incomprehensible interviews-speeches, each of them presenting his own social antidote to the economic crisis. On the shelves of the ideological supermarket every faithful consumer will find the antidote that suits him, in all shades. There are “revolutionary” antidotes, even “anarchist” ones. In Greece, the neo-communists, ex-anarchists, mix in the cauldron of ideologies anarchist labels, with plenty of frozen Marxism, anti-imperialism and a pinch of disguised national liberation. The new tension of “serious” anarchy dresses itself in a formal way and launches the trend of anti-capitalist struggle on a red background. The rhetoric of the neo-communists – “anarchists” talks about everything. In an effort to build a social marketing of propaganda for the masses, it promotes generalizations sanctifying the “oppressed people” and “workers” who, obviously, for them are “not accountable” for their responsibilities and silences, uses covertly socially palatable national references, such as “the Greek people”, “our country” and promises “social salvation” with the coming of post-revolutionary society, preaching in the assemblies of the need for centralized-structures… It seems that some neo-communists already rehearse their future offices. Perhaps, this what they train themselves for now, selling hegemony, experience coming from age and the wisdom of a leader within the anarchist milieu.

‘Commando Emile Henry’ takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against the offices of Groupama Insurance and McQuilling Partners shipping company (Greece)
Friday, May 29th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
“My hands don’t get used to the artificial connection in virtual universes. Connected lives in wireless networks, my eyes search for the eternal fire of rebellion among the multitude of corpses and only in isolated gazes, the conscious individual emerges with dagger eyes that resists dying in the democratic cemetery. Before going to sleep I embrace chaos as an idea that liberates my body and my mind Because after all, it makes me feel alive. I do not want to search for the grail that will liberate future societies. My fingers search for the bloody flight of the destruction of the chains of the rhythmic fire, of the close fire of power and its masters.”
Mauricio Morales Duarte
This day, six years ago, comrade Mauricio Morales was heading to the school for prison guards in Santiago, in distant Chile, when suddenly the bomb, which he intended to place there, exploded prematurely depriving him of his life. Six years later, today at dawn, we carried out a double arson attack as a minimum tribute to the memory of the comrade.
We mined a two-storey building on Vouliagmenis avenue in Elliniko, where the offices of the insurance company Groupama Insurance (a subsidiary of the multinational banking group with the same name) and the offices of the multinational shipping company McQuilling Partners are co-located, placing four improvised incendiary devices. With this action we do not anticipate an impact on or the understanding by neither the willingly obedient mass of peaceful citizens nor the irredentist “professionals” of the movement. Of course, the recognition and appropriation of anarchist violent action by young comrades is a positive perspective. However, we do not see this as a condition or constraint for going on the offensive. That would be hypocritical, because part of our mentality and orientation, beyond the theoretical constitution and practice, remains the constant satisfaction of our instincts and desires, something which is far from negligible.

N.Maziotis and K.Gournas in prison transfer from Domokos to Korydallos for appeal trial in Revolutionary Struggle case (Greece)
Friday, May 29th, 2015
22.5.2015 – Comrades Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas were transferred yesterday from Domokos prisons to Koridallos prisons where the upcoming trial will begin today 22.5.15 in the special court room of the prison.
The comrades were take straight to the basement cells of the female prisons, where they are basically in isolation…
After the demand by comrade Nikos Maziotis for a postponement in order for him to contact his lawyer since his transfer from Domokos was only the previous day, the court decided to adjourn till Wednesday June 10th at 9am.
After communicating with the comrades of the Revolutionary Struggle over the phone, we can state that they are strong and their morale is high!

Athens: The Earth Liberation Front takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against a poultry company in solidarity with the prisoners struggle (Greece)
Sunday, April 19th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
On the evening of the Easter day, 12 to 13 of April, we attacked using 3 incendiary devices with time delay, aiming to destroy the building’s entrance and 3 vehicles (1 truck and 2 vans) belonging to a poultry company in Agios Pavlos Str. in Peristeri, as an action of solidarity with the imprisoned hunger strikers in Greek prisons.
Strength to all those who continue, to the imprisoned members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and those who are recovering, having stood with dignity and consistency against the state and in this specific timing, against the left administrators and exponents of authority – who (and this is clear for all those who don’t connive) since the first day they gripped the governmental seats have made their intentions clear, with highlight, so far, the tactical administration of the hunger strike and the eviction of the occupied University’s of Athens deanery.
IMMEDIATE satisfaction of the hunger strikers’ demands:
Abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A of the counter-terrorist law
Abolition of the hood-law
Abolition of type C prisons
Immediate release of the heavily handicapped Savvas Ksiros
Restriction of DNA use
We chose this specific target as we believe that practical opposition to the non-human animals commercialization industry cannot be excluded from the fight against the state, the capital and every kind of authoritarian superstructure. The practice of detention is the same, equally rejectable whether it has to do with human prisons – “correctional institutions”, concentration camps or if it concerns structures of the meat and animal products industry .
The timing of our attack was no coincidence. It was a moment while the human-mass was still sunk in sloth, having done the previous days their bit towards the Church and the holy ghosts that haunt and define their very existence. Every temple of society, physical or mental, every mold, every stereotype, every habit that reproduces, feeds or just reflects the numerous faces of power, is worth nothing more than being crushed.
Such a habit is the meat eating which has been established the exact same way that the practice of nature looting is established as “normal”, as we notice it taking place in Skouries, Chalkidiki, Italy (NO-TAV) and every place in the world.
Through this action of ours we respond to the call of Chilean comrades, whose actions have given us smiles so many times. Strength to Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Guillermo Durán, who are on hunger strike since April 14th.
At the same time, we are sending our own signal of solidarity and complicity to all those charged, imprisoned and suffering repression, having found themselves on the attack lines of ELF and ALF.
We’re sending out a call to every rebelling individual, every affinity group, every direct action cell, in order to intensify the attacks on all fronts, in any way they think suitable, by all means available.

On 10/04, anarchist Giannis Mihailidis (19th day of hunger strike) was transferred to Attico hospital where he is hospitalized guarded. The comrade has lost 8.5% of his initial body weight and has a number of health problems because of the strike. His body was already encumbered as it had not yet fully recovered from the previous hunger strike in solidarity with comrade Nikos Romanos, a few months ago.

On April 7, 2015 following a protest of 1.500 – 2.000 anarchists in the center of Athens, riots erupted in Exarchia to bring attention to a mass hunger strike of political prisoners taking place in Greece since March 2, 2015. At the moment (April 10) 8 anarchists still continue the hunger strike, some of them for the 40th day.
The political prisoners demand from the so-called left government of SYRIZA:
– Withdrawal of the special anti-terrorist legislation for political activists (laws 187A and 187)
– Withdrawal of the special repressive laws (“anti-hoodie” law)
– Abolition of the “C-type” prisons
– Delineation of the use and processing of DNA as legal.
– Immediate release of disabled prisoner “Savvas Xiros” (98% handicapped)

Athens: ‘FAI – Solidarity and Revenge Cell’ take responsibility for an incendiary attack against local offices of SY.RIZ.A. (Greece)
Thursday, April 9th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
Today, anarchist hunger strikers are on the 38th day of hunger strike. The ongoing struggle targets all anti-insurrectional laws, which constitute the legal armor and the punitive arsenal of the democratic regime. A fight which concerns not only the imprisoned comrades but also anarchists outside prison who fight daily by all means against the enemy, as they are next on the application list of the repressive agenda.
The new government coalition with SY.RIZ.A. in its center, walks the traditional repressive path of social democracy, which has made the system’s assimilation and repression a science. Next to the targeted police and legal repression it puts a wide troupe of academics, artists, leftist journalists and other clowns who systematically slanders, distorts and degrades the struggle and its subjects. At the same time, this new caste of disgusting former PASOK and current SY.RIZ.A. voters that rushed like sheep to vote their new savior blurred from his leftist mirrors, participates like a fifth column in this slandering campaign.
Unlike the more blunt right-wingt system managers, the left government having grown in the core of petty politics (the left) is familiar with this game. So, while the ridiculous Panousis (who probably still bears a grudge against anarchists because of the “care” he had received from some comrades some years ago on this favorite academic step) makes grand, military press announcements, a part of the party apparatus (youth, civil rights movements, etc. ) has assumed the role of internal opposition and the maintenance of government links to the infamous movement which honored it with its votes.
This struggle, as the one during the strike of comrade Nikos Romanos, was an excellent opportunity to test the resilience and nature of anarchists in Greece, on several levels. Apart from the usual imaginary concept of “counter-information”, according to which those who two months ago elected the government of SY.RIZ.A. and the right-wing mob that was coiled by the New Republic, AN.EL. and Golden Dawn parties, would suddenly support anarchists and especially on an issue that does not concern them at all (there is not even half a social demand in this strike, only collateral benefits for various categories of criminal prisoners), the occupations that either ended up useless and problematic or tried to turn the struggle towards irrelevant directions (it’s the irony of life that during the period that this “class struggle-turn” started, in Chalkidiki. the metalworkers were beating the people opposed to the mines, on behalf of Bobolas(1)) and activism intended only to draw the attention of the media, there was also a major wave of violent actions and aggressive interventions across the country.
The only language the enemy understands, is the all-out and multi-form attack, with words and actions, against him. It is the language of the deconstruction of his ideological arsenal and the attack against his infrastructure. It is the texts, flyers, banners and posters, overflowing with hatred. It is the damaged vehicles and buildings, burnt cops, terrified judges and prosecutors and tattered streets in the center of the decaying metropolis.
So, at dawn of Wednesday 08/04, we placed an incendiary device at the entrance of the local youth offices of SY.RIZ.A. in Kessariani, a few blocks away from the local police station.
Let SY.RIZ.A., its politicians, its movement leeches and its sleeping voters know that the macho attitude of the winner deflates quickly, especially when the victory was achieved in a court that we neither played nor will ever play. For us, there is no hallowed leftist veil and historical self-worth which protects you. And if not anything else, we will always remember that you are the government because of which one of our comrades nearly died. You should wish for him to leave the hospital strong and standing.
We salute the comrades of FAI in Greece and abroad who participated actively in the struggle and also the rest of the anonymous or eponymous conspirators who went on the offensive in whatever way they chose to attack. Hopefully, this momentum will continue both in this struggle and in the many to come.
We wish a speedy recovery to the brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Angeliki Spyropoulou and strength to the anarchist prisoners who are still on hunger strike. You are not alone.
The war continues
Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – Solidarity and Revenge Cell
PS1: As we were informed by the mainstream media, the promised transfer of the police units that served as security details for high-profile targets progresses rapidly, and little by little, they are all gathered around the home of the Prime Minister. We, for our part, wish him the best. More empty streets for us.
PS2: Our warm congratulations to the anarchists who voted for SY.RIZ.A., we hope for them to have the dignity to refrain from the solidarity movement for the hunger strikers.

Athens: Incendiary attack against the central offices of Microsoft by ‘Combative Anarchy – FAI/IRF’ (Greece)

ACTION PLAN FOR AN INTERNATIONAL ANARCHIST COUNTER-ATTACK
“LET’S DESTROY REPRESSION”
Combative Anarchy claims responsibility for the attack against the central offices of Microsoft in Greece. The comrades who took part in the action, placed the incendiary device composed of gas canisters and gunpowder and safely left, humiliating the security measures of the building once again. Microsoft is a multinational colossus of the techno-industrial complex, one of the most powerful companies of its industry and inextricably linked to the political and economic system. The attack at the cutting edge of the capitalist domination in techno-science and its murderous tentacles means the attack against the mechanization of life itself. The revolutionary war is a basis around which the constant conflict with the existent is being built, an attempt for the total liberation of our lives from the chains of the state, the capital and their society, which expand to the space-time continuum as the oppressed ones rebel against their oppressors.
On March 2nd, anarchists and political prisoners started a hunger strike, targeting to fight against the repressive framework of the state, the counter-terrorism unit and the judges. At the same time, the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and anarchist Aggeliki Spyropoulou announced the beginning of the hunger strike until death, demanding the immediate release of their relatives, who were revengefully detained by the schemes of the police and judicial mafia. Today, with many comrades hospitalized in critical condition, with CCF comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos being threatened by permanent physical damage, despite the victorious outcome of his organization’s fight, with the “left” managers of power having thrown the mask of humanism in the garbage, the anarchist fight should speed up the counter-attack and lead the state in retreat. The fight of our imprisoned comrades and the new facts on the social and political field, after the election of SY.RI.Z.A., should be evaluated in the direction of revolutionary development. The multiformity of experiences and the collective effort is the focus of this evaluation, which lays the foundation for the material formation of our anti-state conspiracy against power.
Now, it’s in our hands to project the strategic necessity of the anarchist urban guerrilla warfare, by sabotaging the operations of the social machine, blowing up the walls of apathy and releasing the rebellious intentions. Weaving on the thread between theory, action and target, continuing the solitary walking in the paths of freedom, with our minds firmly attached to all our comrades who are locked up in the cells of democracy. We have just started. We are planning sabotages, we are harassing the enemy, we are experimenting with methods and practices, we are organizing our generalized counter-attack against the world of power. This act of ours is a contribution to the comrades of Czech FAI/IRF suggestion, who burned a police car and suggested the creation of an international action project with the name “Let’s destroy repression”, modeled on the “Phoenix” Project.
Moreover, it is our contribution to the days of international solidarity with the imprisoned comrades in Chile. Comrades, this explosion was for you as well! Strength to the comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulou and the prison cell of the Conspiracy who, with their unyielding and victorious fight, will soon see their beloved ones free again. Quick recovery comrades, your perseverance is a source of inspiration for the subversive spirits of our times. Let our fire become a hearth of warmth for the anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters and the member of Revolutionary Struggle, Nikos Maziotis, who stopped the hunger strike before our text was released.
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
GOOD LUCK AND STRENGTH TO EVERYONE WANTED BY THE LEGAL ORDER!
WE ARM, ORGANIZE OURSELVES AND ATTACK!
LONG LIVE THE COMBATIVE ANARCHY!

After the victorious hunger strike of the CCF, comrade Michalis Nikolopoulos has returned from the intensive care unit to his room on the 10th floor of Evangelismos hospital where he was before. During the night of hospitalization in the ICU, where he was moved for close monitoring due to the criticality of the situation, his pulse went down to 20 beats per minute(!) and his pressure to 6. The comrade escaped the immediate danger, his moral is good and according to doctors his heart manages to stabilize although everything was hanging by a thread. Still, he will remain in the hospital for several days, so that some more medical tests are made.
Mihalis was a step away from death and at the same time nothing is over, as the hunger strike of the other political prisoners continues while the state of their health IS deteriorating as they are now on the 35th day of the strike.
NO OTHER COMRADE OF US IN THE ICU!
IMMEDIATE SATISFACTION OF THE DEMANDS OF THE HUNGER STRIKERS
- Abolition of the counter-terrorism laws 187 and 187A
- Abolition of the “hood-law”
- Restriction on the use and proccessing of DNA as an evidence
- Abolition of type C prisons
- Release of Savas Xiros for health reasons
